abstract

Continuously growing worldwide air traffic poses an immense challenge to civil aviation. While the number of flight operations is increasing, the overall number of accidents has to be reduced. In order to reach this ambitious goal, both avionics and the human machine interface (HMI) of the cockpit have to be improved in the onboard domain. An international consortium led by Thales Avionics, one of Europe's leading avionics manufacturers, is therefore - as part of the EC project ISAWARE II of the 5th Framework Program - developing integrated surveillance systems and cockpit displays which intuitively provide pilots with an optimum situational awareness during all flight phases. The project already uses parts of the interactive Cockpit Display System (CDS) developed for the Airbus A380 as a basis. Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Navigation Display (ND), the two central cockpit displays, are additionally equipped with a so-called "Synthetic Vision System" (SVS), a database-driven representation of terrain and airport features resembling the real outside world.
